Slouch Hat #2

Slouch Hat
September 2016 
I had enough yarn left from the first Slouch Hat to knit another. Wow, did the yarn have a surprise in store for me: it striped completely different. The first had a lovely swirl, and this one wanted to be more bold with zig-zags. I rotated the hat and snapped photos to show the striping. 



I still have a bit of yarn remaining, but it's going in a bag with other scraps. It will tell me someday what it wants to become.


All the zig-zags swirled together at the top. It's been gifted to a knitting buddy that liked the way the yarn pooled and striped.

  1. Ha! I really like this one too. So different than the first. Yarn often does what it wants to do - lol.

  2. The differences in the two hats, from the same pattern and the same yarn, are amazing--rather like children from the same family!

  6. How fun! I like how Kristi said it's rather like two children from the same family. It's amazing how different they are but both are so beautiful.
